Accessibility Information <—– abled people should read this too.

Efforts are being made to make this year’s bookfair accessible to more people. The bookfair is still being planned so not all information is available yet but here is what we know:

Sensory/Mobility Hour

During the first hour, main bookfloor space entry and capacity will be limited with priority going to comrades and others with mobility and sensory related disabilities. Fragrances and smoking in or adjacent to the building are not welcome at any point in the day and will be especially unwelcome during the first hour.

Wheelchair Access

Workshops are all wheelchair accessible. Bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. Vendors will all be set up in wheelchair accessible spaces. Tables have been limited to make more room. More description to come, please check back.

ASL Interpretation

There will be ASL interpretation of some workshops, but likely not all. If you are d/Deaf and planning to attend, let us know if you have a preferred interpreter and if possible which workshops you are most interested in. We are still working on figuring out how to allocate resources and recognize that it will not be equal access which is unacceptable and which we continue to strive for. Check back for updates.

We are working on bringing extra lighting, clearer signage and path markings, and improving the airflow for better access.

If you have questions, suggestions, ideas or critiques please contact us at: bayareabookfair@gmail.com.

The Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair is an annual event for people interested and engaged in radical work to connect and learn through book and information tables, workshops, panel discussions, skillshares, films and more! We create an inclusive space to introduce new folks to anarchism, foster productive dialogue between various political traditions and anarchists from different milieus, and create an opportunity to dissect our movements’ strengths, weaknesses, strategies, and tactics.
